The Promises of GOD for His People

There are many people, professing Christians, who are being taught, and who believe that the LORD God is through with the people of God of the Old Testament known as the Hebrews or Israel.  How, if that be so, can we as Christians have confidence that He will not be, someday, through with us?  If … Continue reading The Promises of GOD for His People

A Spiritual Awakening

Reading Daniel 7 - 9 today I once again noticed the prayer of Daniel.  A prayer of repentance; a prayer of recognition of the holiness and righteousness of God.  Though the prayer is for the sins of Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem it seems very powerful even for the Christian of 2018. I share Daniel's prayer … Continue reading A Spiritual Awakening

The Purposing Heart

"But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself." Daniel 1:8  (KJB) Four Hebrew youths plus more had been taken from their homeland … Continue reading The Purposing Heart

The Greatest Inheritance

"And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their possession." Ezekiel 44:28 (KJB) These latter chapters of Ezekiel's prophecy are of a future temple in Israel.  It is often referred to by today's teachers of prophecy as the Millennial … Continue reading The Greatest Inheritance

I Will Be Enquired Of…

The Old Testament is chocked full of God's amazing grace and mercy.  I have learned over the years to view the history of the Old Testament as a picture of my life, and how God not only is working in me but also in all who have been redeemed through the blood of Jesus Christ. … Continue reading I Will Be Enquired Of…

And … Continue reading Israel to Dwell Safely

I Will Not Be Enquired of by You

It does not sound encouraging, comforting, or motivational.  Does it?  Some elders of Israel in the captivity of Babylon came to Ezekiel the prophet seeking God's counsel.  They had not sought it before.  Now they show some interest. God is not our spare tire. Hear the word of the LORD... "And it came to pass … Continue reading I Will Not Be Enquired of by You

The Grace of GOD is Greater Far…

My reading of Scripture today was Ezekiel 15 - 16.  Chapter 16 describes the sins of Judah and Israel, and why God judged them, the sins of Sodom and their judgment (16:49-50).  We can see clearly that God does not tolerate sin.  Sin is what God calls sin; it does not matter at all what … Continue reading The Grace of GOD is Greater Far…

The Peril of Haughty Daughters

"Moreover the LORD saith, 'Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover … Continue reading The Peril of Haughty Daughters

Our Iniquities, Our Enemies, and Our GOD

"O remember not against us former iniquities: let Thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low. Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Thy name's sake. Wherefore should the heathen say, 'Where is their God?' Let him … Continue reading Our Iniquities, Our Enemies, and Our GOD
